Southport

North Wales has its caravan parks, Southport has retirement homes and ‘Dan Dare’, describing itself as ‘England’s Classic Resort’.  Actually, the place is trying very hard to rejuvenate itself, and with some success. The old-fashioned boarding houses are long gone (although I do know of a couple of places in Wales where you can still find Bakelite plugs and post-war austerity measures – where a cooked breakfast is a pan of boiled eggs at 8am sharp), replaced for the most part by friendly B&Bs that cater for a broad range of clientele.  And my many years of staying at the Carlton Lodge in Bath Street (visit Christine and Nicole at www.carltonlodgesouthport.co.uk) when visiting relatives in the town is testament to this.
